The Uprising is On!

American Promise is spearheading a 50-state Citizen Uprising for one goal: the 28th Amendment to get big money out of politics. This is how we re-establish common sense rules to regain balance in our democracy and guarantee free and fair elections. American Promise will see it through, and every citizen has a local role to play in this national wave of action. Here's how far we've come.


We empower cross-partisan efforts of individuals and groups - whether members of American Promise or of allied organizations - who are committed to a 28th Amendment: We the People – not money, not super PACs, not corporations – govern the United States.
